Despite a small drop in the rate of marriages, there are still well over 2 million weddings in the USA alone every year. While everyone has their own unique interests, most people’s weddings end up being pretty similar and standard. While there is nothing wrong with a wedding similar to others, there are those out there who may want to do their own thing.

This is arguably the most important day of your life, and you want to be able to remember it fondly. As a result, you might want to have a little fun with it and be a little different. If you want your wedding to be different and unique, you have come to the right place. This blog post is going to look at a couple of new and exciting ideas for your perfect wedding.
Get Creative With Your Wedding Attire
With some exceptions, most weddings have the bride wearing a white dress and the groom wearing a dark colored suit. While this is timeless and looks great, we think a little deviation from that norm can have great results. This could be anything from looking at online stores like Azazie to find a unique look, to having an interesting “them” within your wedding party. Even something as simple as changing up the colors can be a great way to spice up the ceremony. Whatever you decide to do, you can rest assured people will remember your wedding for the rest of their lives.
Song Requests Ahead of Time
While there are many important things about planning for your wedding, one of the most underrated is music. The music and entertainment you decide to have at your wedding can be important for a number of different reasons. While having a DJ with Spotify taking requests may suffice for some, why not take it a little bit further? When you send out your RSVP letters, consider leaving a little space for people to put a song request. This will often provide a range of different songs to keep things from getting stale. It will also ensure everyone will hear their song on your wedding playlist.
Have a Luxe Looking Candy/Dessert Station
Food is always among the most stressful and tough choices to make for a perfect wedding. There are so many catering options and you need to ensure you have enough for everyone. Also, tastes vary wildly so choosing isn’t always easy. Of course, you want to be sure to have a dinner and midnight snack, at least. However, one cute little addition that could make your event all the better is to have a candy bar. Everyone loves candy, and having some small bags next to a few different candy options on a table is a great move.
Have Note Cards on Each Table

Along with the traditional wine and other little trinkets or gift bags, you could leave a few note cards on each table for your guests. Allow guests to write messages on these to the bride and groom. In addition to this (or instead), you could also potentially use a video booth to record people’s messages, well wishes, notes and advice. Then once the event is over, you could sit down as a couple and watch. These are great ways to reminisce about your special day.
As you can see, there are several different and new ideas out there that can contribute to your perfect wedding. Hopefully this article has been able to inspire you or show you some new ideas that you might include in your very own wedding. Your wedding is your day, so there are no limits to what you can do or how you do it.
